I think we spent about 2 hours, although much of that time was walking to new locations.  We actually might have been able to spend more time but I was really sick that day and just couldn’t take another minute!

Ours was about 2 hours, but with a friend and she was experimenting with a lot of different locations.   We’re getting it done with our wedding photographer in a few weeks, and we’ll be an hour.

Ours was about an hour.  It was outside, 34 degrees.  An hour was about all we could take and we got plenty of great shots.

Ours was almost 4 hours 🙂 but a good chunk of that time was spent changing locations, outfits, setting up the scene, things like that. We invested a lot of time in ours, but that doesn’t mean all sessions need to take that long. A good average time would be around 2 hours

Ours was 2 hours – I think it was plenty of time but if you want to go to different locations you might need longer.

Ours was about an hour and a half. I didn’t get sick of smiling at the shoot, but as soon as we were in the car, I felt like melting into the seat. We got cupcakes, though, and that helped!

Around two hours is pretty standard. 🙂

Our engagement shoot was about 2 hours and fifteen minutes. I never got tired of smiling! I actually had a lot of fun! We went to a few different locations in that time, too.

almost 5 hours lol. but like ktisthatbees said, 2 is a good amount of time. we spent a lot of time in traffic and we took our time at the different locations. I never got tired of smiling though, it was a very natural experience actually! we were just cutesy with each other while someone took pictures
